Microsoft Windows 10 offers two different types of user accounts- a local account and a Microsoft account. A local account is created when you set up your PC for the first time. It allows you to sign in to your PC with a username and password that you create. A Microsoft account, on the other hand, uses an email address and password to sign in. If you’re using a Microsoft account, your settings and files will be saved online and synchronized across all of your devices.
If you’re no longer using a Microsoft account and would like to switch to a local account, you can do so from the Settings menu. Here’s how:
- Open the Settings menu and select Accounts.
- Under the Your account section, select Sign in with a local account instead.
- Enter your Microsoft account password to confirm the change.
- Follow the prompts to create a new local account.
